(National Sentinel) Immigration reform: A little-publicized provision contained in new immigration reform legislation backed by President Donald J. Trump would ban virtually all forms of welfare to new arrives for five years, virtually guaranteeing that only those with the means to support themselves would bother coming to the U.S.
In announcing immigration reform last week, Trump said of his sweeping effort that a key goal is ensuring those who do come to the United States do not instantly become dependent on taxpayers for support.
“Just this week, we announced a historic immigration bill to create a merit-based Green Card system that ends the abuse of our welfare system, stops chain migration, and protects our workers and our economy,” he stated on his weekly radio address on Saturday. “As an example, you cannot get welfare for five years when you come into our country.
“You cannot just come in like in past weeks, years, and decades, you come in immediately and start picking up welfare. For five years, you have to say you will not be asking or using our welfare systems,” he continued.
Trump has been widely panned for his merit-based immigration reforms especially by establishment types in D.C. but also far-Left groups around the country. However, if what Trump is insisting upon is ‘racist’ and ‘bigoted,’ then so are the Australians and Canadians, since he based many of his proposals on their immigration systems.
“Migrants to those countries must compete for a limited number of visas by gaining points for English proficiency, competitive training, a job offer or another major achievement that benefits the host country,” Infowars reported.
By comparison, Germany — where Chancellor Angela Merkel has essentially thrown open the country’s borders to millions of unvetted migrants who don’t speak German and have no skills — must provide for them the instant they set foot inside the country. Their lack of job skills has often led to boredom manifesting itself into Islamic extremism.
German officials admitted last year that under 3 percent of some 1.2 million migrants to the country were employed, though journalist Chris Menahan says even that small number could be exaggerated.
“They said back in July only 55 out of one million migrants had got jobs with any major firms and 50 of those jobs were working at the post office,” he reported. “Two-thirds or more of these migrants are illiterate in their own languages.”
“They came because Merkel promised them free money if they can just make it into the country.”
And as Trump is aware, there is no such thing as free; someone has to pay for it.
